Dennis, Remember I asked this same question about a year ago.  I had the
same problem.  You told me to look at NFS at that time too. I eventually
found it was not NFS but some thing was wrong in the script. I have been
away from that for the last year..but is there a way to find my response to
the RMAN duplicate hanging issue. I am confident it will resolve this issue.
All I can remember it that it had to do with the way I was trying to do it.

I'm going to toss a wild idea in here in case it helps. Toss it back if it
doesn't apply.

Are you using NFS?

Yes the '3D' is gargabage in the mail.=20

Oracle version for original DB is 9.2.0.3 in host A, and 9.2.0.4 in host =
B, (both under windoze) is that a possible problem when using duplicate =
command? I already thought about using backup controlfile and then =
resetlogs, but seems to be inneccesary since there's a duplicate = command,
when I try to duplicate db at the same host, the process = completes
successfully.

Also, I would like to know if the query to monitor the process is the =
right one, and what is the trash generated in the last two lines. Maybe = a
problem with different oracle versions?=20

Thanks
Gabriel

What database version are you using?
Is that your entire script?
This may not be the problem, but in my rman scripts for cloning, I do not
have an '=3D3D' when specifying the size of the redo logs.  .e.g = "SIZE
50M" not "SIZE =3D3D 50m".  However, if this isn't the correct syntax, I
would expect an error instead of just 'hanging'.

Subject: RMAN duplicate hangs

Hello list,=3D3D20

I'm trying to duplicate a DB from host A to host B using RMAN, after = =3D3D
dealing with the directories stuff (having the backup files in the same
=3D3D path as the original) I tried once again to run the process, from =
host =3D3D B, but after creating the DB and restoring the datafiles in host
= B, =3D3D after finishing media recovery it hangs up.. and then crashes
without = =3D3D creating the redo logs.

-this is the last entry to the log file -->

media recovery complete
Finished recover at 15-JUL-04

printing stored script: Memory Script
{
   shutdown clone;
   startup clone nomount ;
}
executing script: Memory Script

-I'm monitoring the process with this query:

select sid, serial#, context,
       round(sofar/totalwork*100,2) "% Complete",
       substr(to_char(sysdate,'yymmdd hh24:mi:ss'),1,15) "Time Now",
       elapsed_seconds, opname
from   v$session_longops;

-and when the process hangs, the query displays this:

31   6288    0    100 040715 14:50:58              43 Hash Join
12   9025    13   100 040715 14:50:58               0 RMAN: aggregate =
=3D3D
output
16   14826   0    100 040715 14:50:58              10 Hash Join
18   10860   44   100 040715 14:50:58       288197021 =

??
29   4292    44   100 040715 14:50:58       288202572 =
!/=3D3DFF=3D3DF9'?=3D3DA3t'=3D
??

I don't know what are the last two rows. After a couple of hours the = =3D3D
process stops.

This is my script:

CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK;
CONFIGURE AUXNAME FOR DATAFILE 1 TO  =3D3D
'F:\ORACLE\oradata\TESTING\datafiles\SYSTEM01.DBF';
CONFIGURE AUXNAME FOR DATAFILE 2 TO  =3D3D
'F:\ORACLE\oradata\TESTING\datafiles\UNDOTBS01.DBF';
=3D2E
=3D2E

RUN {
  ALLOCATE AUXILIARY CHANNEL aux1 DEVICE TYPE DISK;
  ALLOCATE AUXILIARY CHANNEL aux2 DEVICE TYPE DISK;

  SET UNTIL TIME 'SYSDATE-1';
  DUPLICATE TARGET DATABASE TO 'testing'
  LOGFILE
    GROUP 1 ('D:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\REDO01.LOG',
             'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\MAINFILES\BCK_REDO01.LOG') SIZE
=3D3D 50M,
    GROUP 2 ('D:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\REDO02.LOG',
             'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\MAINFILES\BCK_REDO02.LOG') SIZE
=3D3D 50M,
    GROUP 3 ('D:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\REDO03.LOG',
             'F:\ORACLE\ORADATA\TESTING\MAINFILES\BCK_REDO03.LOG') SIZE
=3D3D 50M; }

CONFIGURE AUXNAME FOR DATAFILE 1 CLEAR;=3D3D20 CONFIGURE AUXNAME FOR
DATAFILE 2 CLEAR;=3D3D20 . =3D2E

Am I missing something or doing something wrong? Any ideas?

TIA
Gabriel
